Pure Non-Dairy Milks


Pure Non-Dairy Milks

THE ISSUE:
Unlabeled Suspect Ingredients.

Non-dairy milks have exploded in popularity. However, there is a problem with most commercial versions of these products – they contain suspect ingredients to increase shelf life and make the product taste better – to the extent that consumers are effectively drinking (and loving) the added lecithins/gums/sugars rather than loving the “almond” or “soy” or “coconut” that the milk is supposed to be.

To boot, most restaurants and coffee shops do not indicate what is actually inside the milk holders, so consumers never know the added ingredients lurking inside.  How often do you just see “almond milk” or “coconut milk” or “soy milk” on the bottle at a coffee shop?  Here are some examples of what’s typically also in these products to dramatically increase shelf life and make the product taste “smoother” and "richer":

  • Sugar
  • Soy Lecithin
  • Sunflower Lecithin
  • Carrageenan
  • Xanthan Gum
  • Locust Bean Gum
  • Gellan Gum, etc.

 

HU’s APPROACH:
We Make Our Own Non-Dairy Milks Or Source Pure Products.

    At Hu, we either make our own non-dairy milks or source products that have no hidden, junky ingredients.  For example:

    • Hu’s Almond Milk  = almond + water (nothing else).
    • Hu’s Coconut Milk = organic coconut + water (nothing else).
